I am a college student in the United States, currently in my second year studying Geography. I'm an aspiring writer, a traveller, lover of music and people and smiling. I played water polo for twelve years, and practically live in the water. Poetry is my escape, as it is for so many people, and I'm only just starting to share. I love reading poetry and learning from others so please feel free to share and reach out!


Sick, and sweetly I fell, I stuck in the Caramel of your eyes and Words that captured me From the moment I saw the Sweetness of your smile That peeked from behind a Peppermint mouth which Kissed my lips in licorice Nighttime in the front seat of your car; Which spun webs of sugar words That tangled my honey heartstrings. Cotton candy hair in Pillow mint sheets and Sweet nothings in my ear Shook me to my cherry core For when you unglued your Cloying lips from mine It all spilled out, Your recipe for my disaster. You were a master spinner, Delicately weaving a sugar web For my demise: a sticky sweet trap So you could steal my mallow heart Crystallize it, And smash it on the floor.

I KNEW you were 'cut from the same cloth!' Another Libran! With a great balance of 'hard-head' and 'soft-heart'. And a drive for creativity.

The photo so reminds me of sitting on the shoreline of Bermuda, just looking out to sea, and wave watching, marvelling at the 'connective energy' of our planet. I found such moments both peaceful and stimulating at the same time, awe-inspiring.

Tia, welcome to WOL. You sure sound like a kindred soul, age notwithstanding. Writing, travelling, people, music and smiling - in a splendid nutshell. Totally agree.
